Liverpool will not be allowed to win the Premier League title at Anfield


The Premier League will return on June 17, meaning Liverpool will get the chance to win the title without it being handed to them.

The Reds need just two wins to win the league for the first time in 30 years. They could seal it in their first game back if Manchester City lose at home to Arsenal.

However, they’re going to do it without any fans in attendance as the season will be resumed behind closed doors.

And worst still is that Liverpool won’t be allowed to win the title at Anfield.

According to The Athletic’s James Pearce, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be permitted to play their remaining home games at Anfield.

However, if the title is up for grabs when Liverpool are due to play at home, that game will be played at a neutral venue.

Pearce adds that Liverpool’s away fixtures against Everton, Manchester City and Newcastle United will all be played at a neutral ground.

The decision has been made because police fear Liverpool would celebrate on the streets of the city if they win it at home, and break social distancing rules.

However, the news has left Liverpool supporters extremely disappointed.

Indeed, Pearce couldn’t make any sense of it.
